HARTSELLE, AL (WAFF) -

A Morgan County principal made good on a promise to students Monday, and she did it in high-flying fashion.

Robin Varwig told students at Crestline Elementary that she would celebrate "in a big way" if they reached their Relay for Life fundraising goal.

That "big way" was by parachuting out of an airplane.

Varwig said the students not only met their fundraising goal, but exceeded it. She said they wanted to raise $5,000 for the American Cancer Society, but students, teachers and families raised more than $8,100.
